Tao is a software package for sound synthesis using physical models. It provides a virtual acoustic material constructed from masses and springs, which can be used as the basis for building quite complex virtual musical instruments. It comes with a synthesis language for creating and playing instruments and a C++ API for those who would like to use it as an object library.
